University of California, Irvine Extension announced a platinum sponsorship of the 11th annual International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference, which will be held at University of California, Irvine, Calit2 Building in Irvine, Calif. on Oct. 23-24.
According to a release, the SoC conference is an event for engineering communities devoted to chip design and development. The theme for this year's conference, hosted by Savant Company, Inc, is "Emerging Complex SoC Platforms, and Mixed-Signal SoC Design Challenges."
"With the incredible amount of intellectual knowledge and business acumen present at the SoC conferences, the caliber of the conference is raised year after year," said Dr. Dave Dimas, director of UC Irvine Extension's engineering, sciences and information technology programs. "UC Irvine Extension participates at this conference to ensure all curriculum is reflective of current business trends and also for conference participants interested in furthering their knowledge of the embedded systems field to have an opportunity to learn about educational opportunities available."
The International SoC Conference provides a platform for sharing and disseminating research, product announcements, and informative technical tutorials, and it has established itself as the forum for debating emerging challenges and possibilities in the System-on-Chip field. Each targeted conference fosters collaboration among industry experts and academia in an effort to present the most up-to-date and advanced topics in chip design (Analog, Mixed-Signal, SoC, ASIC, ASSP, FPGA, EDA, IP, Foundry Services, 3D-ICs, SOI, CMOS, Embedded Memory, Embedded Systems, NoC, IOs, IPs, CPU/DSP/GPU Cores, Signal Integrity, Design for Testability, Design Verification, Design for Manufacturability, Variation-Aware Methodologies, etc.) to a technical audience.
"UC Irvine Extension offers students the opportunity to learn and gain insight from some of the most highly-recognized engineering experts in the industry," said Farhad Mafie, International SoC Conference Chairman. "The school understands the needs of busy professionals in this field; its industry-leading Embedded Systems Engineering Certificate Program is designed to provide the most up-to-date and relevant technical information to UC Irvine Extension students. We are very excited to have UCI Extension as our Platinum sponsor once again at this highly-educational and informative event. "
The conference tabletop exhibit, which is free to visit, is held on Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. It provides an outstanding forum for engineering communities to meet face-to-face with experts presenting at this event, as well as with experts from the exhibiting companies, and discuss their complex SoC-related questions.
UC Irvine Extension's online certificate program in Embedded Systems Engineering examines the synergistic function between hardware and software device design and development.
